The grille says it's a '63. Maybe a typo?

vins correct and i hear 66 is the only year that didn't have steps so must be original. would be a nice addition that i don't need.

I thought 65 didnt have steps? Whole front end is wrong. Still a cool truck tho. If it was closer I'd be buying it.

from what i've been told 66 is the only year that does not have a step. i noticed the front also, especially the grill and emblems. still kind of a nice truck if you don't mind them a little rough. my "project" is enough for my finances so i'll leave it alone. also i pbly shouldn't admit this on here but i'm looking for a very rough and cheap 60-66 k20 (chevy). i still like fords better but the chevy 4x4's and dodge d200 4x4's are also cool in my opinion.

What do you mean by "step?" That it's a Flareside Pickup?

ALL 1961/72 F100/250 2WD/4WD's & F350's were available as a: Cab & Chassis, Flareside or Styleside Pickup, with a Platform (flat bed), or a Platform & Rack (stake bed).

There were two Open Drive-Away's available: Cowl & Windshield or Chassis & Cowl. Good Humor Ice Cream trucks for example, were Cowl & Windshields.

F26DK686223

F26 = F250 4WD

D = 352 2V (The D VIN engine code was only used in 1965).

686223 = 1965, assembled in May 1965.

The grille is from a 1963, the upper grille panel is from a 1961/64. Both are evidence that this truck was hit in the front end at some point.

mickyy: The whole front end isn't wrong. The front fenders are correct for: 1961/65 F100/250 4WD's, 1966 F250 4WD's & 1961/66 F350's, as they have a 45" opening radius.

1961/65 F100/250 2WD's, 1966 F100 2WD/4WD's & 1966 F250 2WD front fenders have a 36" opening radius. The hood is the same for all 1961/66 F100/1100's.

1959 was the first year Ford offered factory installed 4WD on F100/250's.

Previous years were all conversions, usually done by Marmon-Herrington, or in some cases by NAPCO.

1979 was the first year Ford offered factory installed 4WD in F350's. Previous years were all conversions.

Cab Step: 1961/64 F100/250 2WD/4WD / 1961/66 F350/1100 / 1965 F100/250 4WD / 1966 F250 4WD.

No Cab Step: 1965 F100/250 2WD / 1966 F100 2WD/4WD / 1966 F250 2WD.
